  • 1/2 cup hulled pistachio nuts
  • 1/4 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried dates, (about 12, roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground cardamom, (I ground the seeds from six pods using a mortar and pestle)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted if solid


  • Put the nuts, seeds, dates and cardamom into the bowl of a food processor and blitz until the mixture is a small crumb.
  • Add the freeze dried strawberries and coconut oil and pulse until combined. You want the strawberry pieces broken up, but not completely disintegrated - it's nice to come across a larger piece of it in the mixture every now and then.
  • Roll into small balls and refrigerate until firm (at least half an hour)
  • Store in the fridge (or freezer).
